where the government is transparent only when it is convenient for the government. >> i think -- >> about an hour ago, there is a revision to section 215. for weeks, they knew this hearing was coming. they release his before the hearing began. forward, buta step
my amendment makes a simple but important change. it limits the government's collection of those records -- of the records to those records that pertain to a person who is the subject of an investigation pursuant to section 215. opponents of this amendment will use the same tactics that every government throughout history has used to justify its violation of rights. fear. they'll tell you the government must violate the rights of the american people to protect us
seize everybody's phone records but this is what has happened under section 15 under the government. government's gone too far in the name of security that the fourth amendment has been bruised. rein in government invasion, no more dragnet operations, get a specific warrant based on
of each and every american. as director of national intelligence has made clear, the government collects the phone records without suspicion of every single american in the united states. my amendment makes a simple but important change. it limits the government's collection of those records -- of the records to those records
collection? >> i am concerned about the fact that the government will not state really what the rules are with respect to tracking americans on their cell phones. i have asked this repeatedly at public hearings and the intelligence committee. the government official position is first they have the authority to do it. they said they are not doing it now but they will not spell out the rules today with respect to the rights of americans with respect to cell phone tracking.
false narrative occur -- has occurred that the american government is reading people's emails and thost not true. the facts are these. the only people who have benefited if the revelation of classified information by someone who worked for this government who intentionally and unauthorized declassified some of the most sensitive national security information that we have, the only result is that those who are engaged in islamic jihad will have been benefited and those we seek to protect have not. consider this there is more
the government says that every domestic phone record is relevant to a terrorist investigation and can be obtained under section 215 of the patriot act. i understand the court agrees with this interpretation. you put some restrictions on that. i do not understand the limits. invokeou of oak -- section 215 to get all commercial data.
we have done, and we have been very specific is that we would like the government to describe what is the unique value of the collection of all of these law-abiding americans that you can not get with the quite sweeping emergency of ortiz and court warrant processes? quarantines and court warrant processes?
, laying bare our personal lives to the scrutiny of government bureaucrats and contractors, is not with the country is about. what we want them focused as people who are suspected of terrorism. >> picking up on the governor's
information we had the criticism of the government
to myould you say constituents would say, i did not want the government having this information. is aesn't meet what reasonable expectation of privacy. to collect that much information, the information of 300 million americans. lex i would say two things. timese had 34 different where the court has said that
are different. the government requires the providers to retain the records to share the expense. >> thank you.
to talk about it. the government over classified everything. now, i think we have a terrific article that senator feinstein wrote. we have good testimony by bob
in american government. i know of no other court that doesn't have some kind of ai adversarial discussion where
today the attorney general eric holder told the russian government the u.s. will not seek the death penalty for the former national security agency systems analyst edward snowden. reports say mr. snowden filed papers seeking asylum in russia on the grounds he will return to the u.s. and would face the death penalty.
narratives and a false narrative has emerminged that the federal government is taking in the content of americans' phone calls. that's not true. it's not happening. false narrative occur -- has occurred that the american
of government. this is precisely the way our government ought to operate with input from article 1 and article 2 and article 3 of the united states constitution. it's of course our duty to
section 215 of the patriot act says that the government can obtain -- quote -- "any tangible thing relevant to a national security investigation." that is the foreign intelligence surveillance court's way of saying that section 215 permits the collection of millions of americans' phone records on a daily ongoing basis. as a member of the senate intelligence committee, i've
the government to disclose how many americans have had the information reviewed by federal agents. my bill would allow private companies to disclose aggregate figures about the number of pfizer orders that they are receiving and the number of their users that these orders have affected. coalitionago, a broad of 63 internet companies and bipartisan civil liberties groups sent a letter to the president asking for reforms
the government from misusing section 215 to engage in the llection of all of our personal records. congress did not grant the executives to collect everything it wants. this amendment restores the requirement that are relevant to an authorized intelligence investigation and ignored by successive administrations. no administration should be permitted to operate above or beyond the law as they have done this this respect. i urge all of my colleagues to vote in favor of the amash
privacy. we have an equal responsibility to ensure that the government provides a strong national defense. that is a given. gathering is necessary and a vital part of that defense. we have a duty to ensure that
congress has to carefully consider the powerful surveillance tools that we grant the government and ensure that there is stringent oversight and accountability and transparency. this data should not be limited to those surveillance programs about which information was leaked. that is why i have introduced a bill that addresses not only
and bad for democracy. i'm introducing a bill to fix this. it will force government to disclose how many americans have had to information collected under the key authorities of the foreign intelligence surveillance act.
. there is perhaps no program in the united states government that is as carefully monitored in overseeing the programs this amendment attempts to clarify. to the extent that some in this chamber wish to review and
. always going to be dots to collect and analyze and try to connect. the government is collecting data on millions of innocent americans on a daily basis. based on a secret legal
little information we had the criticism of the government because of these stovepipes, the inability to share intelligence, the inability to collect intelligence, we had no row graham that could -- program that could have caught two people in san diego before the event took place. i support this program. , think, based on what i know they will come after us and i think we need to prevent an attack wherever we can from happening. that does not mean that we
that those violations are significantly more troubling than the government has stated. >> well, when you say things like that, we all listen because we know that you can't spell it
or espionage. under this more targeted approach, our government would retain its broad authorities to investigate terrorism while ordinary americans would be protected from overly intrusive surveillance activities. congress should support the administration's move in this
of government. that is why it was especially disturbing to see that the director of national intelligence was forced to apologize for inaccurate statements he made last march he for senate intelligence committee. the statement can -- concern one of the important programs will be hearing about. this very day.
of information that our government can collect that would be off-limits? what's next? are medical -- our medical records? we must be able to put in place reasonable measures that allow our law enforcement agencies to pursue enemies who would try to harm us while protecting our rights as americans. that's why i believe that if an investigation cannot assert some
and security must co-exist together. this amendment states that in no uncertain terms that the government cannot use section 702 of the fisa to intentional target an american for surveillance. this important amendment also reaffirms that the phone conversations cannot be

with the global lgbt community against the attitude and actions of the russian government. here's my next question, bob. it's one thing to pour out vodka. but i'm sure some people are asking, what really is that going to accomplish when it comes to all of this happening over in russia? >> again, we do not expect the russian government to collapse and change the laws. we know. we're not naive about that. what we're trying to do is we're asking people like stoli to move the conversation forward. the conversation with stoli has been their denial of being a
way, it's loaded. there's only one case coming before the fisa's case. it's the government's case. let's have an advocate for someone standing up for civil liberties to speak up about the privacy of americans when they make the decisions, and release some of the transcripts, carefully redacted so people understand the debate in the courts. >> so senator chambliss, support for ending that program seems to be growing. can you defeat the amendment, number one, and number two, what kind of reforms can you support? >> well, certainly it's good to have a healthy debate on this
section 702 may be targeted in any way by the united states government. while there are other specific authorities, the u.s. person may be subject to an
him a these are reforms that our country needs. you deserve a government that works for you, not against you. step reforms are one toward rebuilding the trust in our government and faith in our economy. thank you and have a great weekend. >>, government next is the robertcators with mcchesney talking about the internet and how it has changed in the last 20 years. at firstinue our look late -- we continue our look at first ladies. that the congressional caucus on black men and boys hosted on capitol hill focusing on the status of black males in the united states. >> c-span created by public companies in 1979 and brought to you as a public service by your provider. >> we want to introduce you to robert mcchesney thomas a communication professor at university of illinois at urbanachampaign. he is a cofounder of the group free press. he served as president for several years. he is on the board. professor mcchesney is also an author. here is his most recent book called "digital disconnect of capitalism." what this your pieces in a digital is connect? internetsis is the began with

corporations and in general it was going to be a self-government. which had never been fully tactical prior to the internet being practical. people actually had the information required to govern their lives in that sense. so that is a high bar of the internet when it began. i think oftentimes to this day, people say yes, that is what the internet is doing. on certain key points in our mythology, what has happened is that are specific areas where we have turned in the opposite direction. i will give you an example. one of the great ideas is you could go on and not be known who you were so you didn't have to worry about being monitored in the way the internet is developed is for commercial reasons because this is the way that commercial interests can make money off the internet so we have a division between what was 20 or so what it is today. >> host: you talk about loneliness and personalization. >> guest: we are giving people the power to build sources i'm collaborating people are concerned with this drawing of things together. evidence suggests that the internet is producing a lot of peop

in and around buddhism's holiest shrine injured to persons. the government described it as a terror attack. the mahogany temple complex is located in a place where purists -- where the buddhist is believed to have attained enlightenment. 10 bombs struck. the nia is probing the explosions. at least two months -- at least two monks were injured in the coordinated terror attack. a total of 13 bombs were placed there. to live bombs were detected and diffuse at the complex while a third bomb was recovered near tha hotel. this is the first time gas cylinders have been used as containers for explosives. investigators believe that the damage could have been far greater. buddhists sites across india have remained exempt from such strikes. fairly specific intelligence regarding an imminent threat and buddhist targets in general, particularly in the wake of the organized attacks against muslims in myanmar, has been communicated to the government by the intelligence agencies. dehli's special cell sent an intelligence advisory, warning about possible strikes. ] >> the attack has sparked outrage and co

the budget. the government runs out of money on september 30th. the gop said that the sequester must stay in place, $109 billion starting in october. maybe reconfigured and billions of dollars more in spending cuts. they say cut spending. other than the republicans surrendering what is your plan to avoid a government shutdown. >> if you look at what is going on right now, in terms of our deficit, we are reducing the deficit at the fastest rate since the demobilization after world war ii we need to talk about growth and how we build a better future. >> are you saying we not have a deficit problem? >> if you look at the apt of deficit reduction we are doing, we were criticized by the itch mf for doing too much too soon that we should do more later and less now. in the international kbhuncommu there's a consensus that we need to focus on growth around the international community. that you cannot just cut your way to growth, you need medium and long-term reforms that put things in the right place for the long-term. >> republicans would agree that you need more growth. but they say to do it, y
. now, i think it's time really to look -- take a hard look at the model the federal government has used for infrastructure which is user taxes, trust funds and grants. first of all, user taxes are now seen as just taxes, and any increase, even though it would go for productive uses, is seen as a tax increase and, therefore, hard to get support for. it also creates disaffection such as people believing the program is all about bridges to nowhere in alaska. congress has created many unfunded mandates meaning it increases the costs states have to bear, and the model encourages states to fund projects out of annual revenues rather than financing them over the long term as all investor-owned infrastructure does, electric utilities, railroads, toll roads and so forth. the thrust of my written testimony is it really is time to rethink the federal government's policy. i think there are three key points for doing so. sort out which functions are truly federal, refocus the federal government on that and delegate the rest to state and local governments where the need really is. second, shift from
are going to have a socialist government sooner or later because the democratic party has now become neo-socialists in the european -- 18th-century european style. socialism as a governmental philosophy always, always fails. it fails the cost theialis micromanage -- because the micromanage every activity. i think the people who left this country -- left their country who have come to the united states have come for freedom and opportunity and not the micromanagement by the neo- socialist government like a democrat now are offering to theirho will listen message. and i think the republican message needs to be freed him -- freedom, with a structure by the government but not by control. host: darrell. gainesville, florida. i am a republican, like i said, for almost 60 years. and i have come through the es ofrent eras and chang this country. and i participate in the political process. however, being a social logical -- sociological student over the years i came to realize that the republican party is like, the new ku klux klan. the hood is no longer they wear the -- thatds but they portray a
road on friday night. government forces responded at that point forcefully. they began rioting. they were so many that i went to see what was going on. i cell phones and plainclothes with police behind them, firing with snipers everywhere. >> the muslim brotherhood laid -- has laid the blame on the government and military. it suggests hundreds were killed , and thousands more were injured. >> they did not have the morality to shoot at limbs. they were firing intentionally at our heads. theymbed on top of -- climbed on top of the university and were killing people in cold blood. >> it is not clear how many people died in the overnight violence. the government disputes the figure, and the version of events. the interior minister denies that police fired shots, and said they were provoked. >> they have been staging a sit in for 29 days. -- no forcesched approached them. they tried to instigate the incident in order to capitalize and gain sympathy. this is absolutely unacceptable. i request all sides to listen to the voice of reason. government's case was this video it released on
